As a licensed Class 2 Special Inspections Agency, Azimuth Engineering offers special inspection services for many types of construction projects in New York City. NYC began including Tenant Protection Plan (TPP) requirements in its building code starting in 2008, with additional tenant protection legislation added to the requirements in 2017, 2019 and 2021. As of November 7, 2022, TPP inspections are required for all work completed in residential buildings with more than three residential units.
According to NYC’s Department of Buildings, the TPP is required whenever any dwelling unit remains occupied during construction. The TPP is required even when residential space is not within the proposed construction area (e.g., work on commercial spaces and rooftops in a mixed-use building).
The 2021 changes to the TPP requirements, known as Local Law 126 came into effect in November 2022. The DOB now requires Special Inspections be conducted at “sufficient periodic intervals to verify compliance with the Tenant Protection Plan… throughout the course of work.”
No matter what kind of work is being done, Azimuth can provide certified TPP Inspections to ensure compliance with the plan. According to the DOB, here are the Work Types that currently require a TPP:
